Remarkable Herbs Kratom Vendor Review

Remarkable Herbs Kratom vendor review with company logo

Remarkable Herbs is familiar to just about everyone. Consumer recognition of this headshop kratom brand owes to its widespread availability. You can find its kratom products all across the United States.

If you’re considering a purchase, you should know all the facts before deciding. That’s why we’ve compiled this comprehensive vendor review. Read on for all of the pros and cons of this West Coast kratom supplier.

What is Remarkable Herbs?

Remarkable Herbs Kratom is the oldest vendor in America and the only one instantly recognizable to consumers who haven’t ever tried kratom before. That’s because it’s the market’s most widely distributed kratom brand. Remarkable Herbs is available in convenience stores, novelty shops, filling stations, headshops, and more.

Located in the 25-year-old city of Citrus Heights, CA, Remarkable Herbs is the kratom connoisseur’s finest source for speciosa in Sacramento County. Established in 2001 (long before the average American ever heard of kratom or its alkaloids), Remarkable Herbs has been doing its thing for more than 20 years.

From day one, this commercial kratom supplier had a clear mission: provide domestic, retail access to world-renowned entheogens, herbs, and smoking blends while ensuring the highest possible quality. It has fulfilled this goal through ethical, sustainable harvesting, tight-knit international relationships, and discriminating product selection.

At least, that’s what the PR types would tell you, but this isn’t what we’ve observed. Our review staff was less than impressed with the freshness and strength of its kratom. The staleness of its kratom powder may have been due to poor inventory rotation by proprietors.

In any event, Remarkable Herbs Maeng Da Kratom was neither potent nor particularly pleasant tasting. While some will point to kratom’s naturally bitter taste as the reason for its unappealing flavor, we would beg to differ. The samples in question tasted off. We hesitate to use the word ‘synthetic’ to describe the taste, but it’s as good as any other.

On a positive note, we appreciate that Remarkable Herbs is a GMP-certified brand whose products have undergone a third-party audit. For this reason, Remarkable Herbs to be a safe brand. Nevertheless, we have yet to experience firsthand the satisfaction others have expressed.

What It Has to Offer

This vendor specializes in a select number of classic kratom strains. They include Bali Kratom, Indo Kratom, Maeng Da, Red Maeng Da, Malaysian Kratom, Thai Kratom, and Vietnam Kratom.

In the past, we have received requests from readers asking us to write a review of Remarkable Herbs Maeng Da White. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to say about what we think is usually a dynamic strain of kratom. This smoke shop kratom powder was neither potent nor crisp when we tried it.

Remarkable Herbs kratom strains

If there’s a best Remarkable Herbs kratom strain, it would have to be Green Indo. This surprising specimen is profoundly aromatic and redolent of moss and allspice. The woodsy finish is like experiencing nature’s embrace and not dissimilar from our own strain of Green Bali powder.

There are other worthwhile items, such as Aged Kava and Remarkable Herbs Hirsuta. This vendor carries Fijian Kava, Mahakea Kava, Mo’i Kava, Tongan Kava, Vanuatu Kava, and Waka Kava. Each of these lateral root extract powders will vary in their specific properties. Kava purists would likely not approve.

The kava drinkers of the South Pacific believe true Kava can only be produced through mastication and regurgitation. As J. Maarten Troost pointed out in his excellent non-fiction book, Getting Stoned with Savages, authentic Vanuatu Kava is made into a drinkable paste with saliva from native children. Suffice it to say that Remarkable Herbs’ Vanuatu Kava should carry a label reading, “Saliva not included.”

What It Costs and How It Compares

Remarkable Herbs Bali 20 oz goes for $85.99, which is rather steep compared to your average online kratom vendor. 20 ounces amounts to just under 567 grams of kratom powder. Most e-commerce sites charge around $50-60 for 500 grams. For example, Pure Leaf Kratom charges $49.89 for 500 grams of its Raw Kratom Maeng Da.

Although it does not conform to current e-commerce rates, this vendor’s prices are still well below that of your typical headshop. Remarkable Herbs’ prices start at $7.99 for an ounce of kratom, less than what you can expect from most smoke shops. For example, Elevated Buffalo charges $11.99 for a single ounce.

In addition to its one-ounce and 20-ounce pouches, Remarkable Herbs offers three ounces for $15.99 or eight ounces for $39.99. These prices may vary over time and may be subject to sales tax or shipping and handling.

Top Remarkable Herbs Alternatives

‘Remarkable Herbs vs OPMS’ is one of the most commonly searched terms on the Internet, illustrating the need for many choices. Though Remarkable Herbs is a popular and well-regarded brand, there are other options at your disposal. The following are our picks for the best alternatives around:

(Full Disclosure: MIT45 is our parent company.)

Due to widespread distribution, Remarkable Herbs has remained at the top of the industry totem pole. The brand is distributed to more than 15,000 stores across the U.S. But there are other ubiquitous brands with sublime products. MIT45 is arguably the most reasonable and robust brand to grace the international marketplace.

This Utah-based manufacturer is distributed throughout Canada and the U.S. via a growing assortment of smoke shops, indie stores, and retail chains. As of this writing, you can find MIT45 on display at your neighborhood Circle K.

You can’t go wrong with its trailblazing MIT GO Black Extra Strength kratom gel pouch. Not only is it the most convenient and savory liquid kratom extract we’ve come across – replete with kratom potentiators and a squeezable pouch – but it’s the most affordable. At $11.95 for a honey-based extract, MIT GO Black is a tremendous value.


Vivazen is another contender for the spot long held by Remarkable Herbs. As smoke shop brands go, this may be the most controversial, making it one of the most talked about brands. Vivazen is your choice if you’re looking for specialty extracts at economical prices. Viva Zen Max in particular has received five-star ratings and tons of buzz on the expo circuit.
